Second Spring...

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
~ Albert Camus

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I have always been fortunate to experience Fall year after year. My heart skips a beat as a see the seasons changing right before my eyes. During September, October and November, the once green leaves of spring and summer alter their appearance and transform before our eyes into glowing oranges, brilliant ochres, fiery crimsons, and deep, rich browns.

As Fall is coming to an end, I'd like to share some of the lovely leaf photos that have been filling up the pages of Tiny Treasures:

"May Jack-o-lanterns burning bright
Of soft and golden hue
Pierce through the future’s veil and show
What fate now holds for you."
~Author Unknown

I don't know about you, but every year I look forward to seeing pumpkins everywhere I turn: piled in grocery store aisles and sitting on porches carved up into Jack-O-Lanterns. I eagerly await biting into pumpkin pies, muffins, and bread. I even have visions of pumpkin lattes dancing in my head. I can't wait to head off to the pumpkin patch and look out over a sea of bright orange pumpkins (not to mention the hot apple cider, hay rides, and corn mazes)!!

There have been so many gorgeous pumpkin shots being contributed to Tiny Treasures that I couldn't resist sharing a few here today:
